The Department of Biostatistics, Epidemiology and Informatics at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania seeks candidates for several Assistant Professor positions in either the non-tenure clinician educator track or the tenure track. Expertise is required in the specific area of biostatistical methods development and applications, with the ability to establish oneself as a research leader in their area of specialization. While both tenure and clinician-educator track faculty conduct methodological and collaborative research, tenure track faculty focus primarily on methodological research while clinician-educator track faculty focus primarily on collaboration. Applicants must have a Ph.D. or equivalent degree.
Teaching responsibilities will include participation in biostatistics PhD and MS training programs, as well as teaching biostatistics courses in epidemiology, health policy, and other biomedical programs. Candidates are expected to have a strong commitment to teaching and mentoring.
Research or scholarship responsibilities will include statistical methods development and contributions as a statistical leader for collaborative research studies. Candidates with experience in statistical methods for electronic health records, longitudinal data analysis, missing data, imaging statistics, or causal inference, and/or an interest in health disparities and health equity or pediatric research are especially encouraged to apply. We have a special interest in hiring someone interested in cancer and clinical trials.
